I don’t have any revelations from God. All I have is this weird sense of waiting.
So the wedding last night went off well enough. The State of Oklahoma makes us clergy folk the custodians of the marriage license once the ceremony is finished. So for tomorrow’s long bike ride, I’m heading off to the county offices downtown. At least they have a bike rack where I can lock it.
I never charge for ministry services, but the couple gave me enough to cover the new wheel bearing assembly. It’s ordered and in transit. It will be nice to dive the car faster than 40MPH without all the noise and vibration.
Most people don’t seem to understand why the US economy is about to collapse. There is way too much debt, and debt servicing has absorbed so much productivity that everything is grinding to a halt. On top of this, we have already exported the majority of our production jobs, so about the only jobs left are in low-wage positions in various service industries. The US economy rests entirely on consumer spending and frivolous consumption. The consumers don’t have any money for it any more.
Granted, Oklahoma is doing better than a lot of other states, because you can’t ship farming and petroleum jobs offshore. We still have lots of mini-mansion building around here and people buying them. I suppose I’m living in a good place to survive as things decline.
And for some crazy reason my old review of LifeChurch TV is getting a hundred visits today.
